Other School Equipment

school-equip

FX85coloursAll pupils are issued with the appropriate text and exercise books. They are the responsibility of the student and must be replaced if lost or damaged. It is expected that these books are treated with care and contain no graffitti.

All pupils need a calculator of their own to take this to their lessons. We do not lend calculators to students as they are such a fundamental piece of equipment. The National Curriculum in Maths requires knowledge of the various calculator functions and efficient use of them. We recommend that a scientific calculator is bought to allow pupils to familiarise themselves with all functions over a period of time. There are many scientific calculators on the market but one is available from school (Casio fx-83GTplus) and this can be purchased from the maths department for around £7 at the start of the new Autumn term.

Maths sets containing, pencil, pencil sharpener, compass, eraser, ruler, protractor, and a set square are available from the maths department at a cost of around £1.
